Please note that it takes a moment for the map to load after each legend field is selected. The fewer fields chosen, the faster the information will load. To choose a field, place the cursor over the blank box and click the mouse to select. Place the cursor (hand or pointer) over various areas on the map in order to view the information. To get a closer look, place the cursor over the spot you want to view and right hand click the mouse to choose the "zoom in" feature. Choose the "hand" feature to again pan across the map. Using the tool bar (the green field above the map) can also help you navigate.
